I thought I'd actually managed to visit the Salvation Army charity shop on Friday without making a purchase which wouldn't have been a bad thing after the huge haul of goodies I'd found at the car boot sale and both jumble sales the day before.....
...but just as I was leaving the manager called me back and presented me with this vibrant 1960's wool suit she'd held back from earlier in the week.
It's actually from a Bridal Centre, hot chilli red seems a strange choice for a bride. I've left the tag in to show the £2 bargainacious price.
The cooler weather means digging out the boots I snaffled in TopShop's August sale for £20. The advantage of living in the town that style forgot means that beauties like this end up reduced to clear whilst the rest of the female population shuffle about in fake Uggs and tatty ballet flats.

An exciting parcel arrived from Australia this morning which I'll be sharing with you tomorrow. I've also been asked to do a perfume post and a "Why I Love Vintage" feature. Any more requests are very welcome.
